The addition of epoxy modifier in bitumen is a relatively new modification technology (1-4) and the most critical epoxy polymerization-induced changes of the epoxy-bituminous materials are not fully understood. Different phenomena take place when epoxy modifiers are incorporated into bitumen and they are dependent on the material hardening...

The utilization of synthetic fibers has been reported in the past (1-8) showing enhancement of fatigue and thermal cracking resistance in asphaltic materials. However, the limited evidences about the benefits of these fibres in asphaltic materials at low material scales have been noticed. Also, the exact reinforcing mechanism of binding system...

Predicting accurately the response of sands to cyclic loads is as relevant as still challenging when many loading cycles are involved, for instance, in relation to offshore or railway geo-engineering applications. Despite the remarkable achievements in the field of soil constitutive modelling, most existing models do not yet capture...

Asphaltic mixes are self-healing materials since they have the capacity to close internal microcracks at higher temperatures or under external force. To trigger their self-healing, asphalt mixes modified with inductive agents can be heated and in that way healed through applying alternating magnetic fields with the aid of an induction coil and...

Epoxy modified bitumen (EMB) is a promising technology for long lasting paving materials ensuring higher resistance to rutting, oxygen- and moisture-induced damage. In this paper, an analysis of the chemical reactions that take place during the chemical hardening process (curing) of epoxy modified bitumen
was conducted by means of Fourier...

The ageing of bitumen has a significant impact on the mechanical behavior of asphalt concrete. In this study, Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR) tests were utilized to investigate the effect of ageing on the relaxation properties of bituminous materials. PEN 70/100 bitumen films with thickness of 2 mm were exposed to laboratory ageing at various...

Digital elevation models (DEM) are widely used in various distributed hydrological models. The stream network can be extracted from it so that runoff routing can be calculated. With the advent of remote sensing and computing technologies, the computation based on DEM with high resolution becomes possible. However, there still exist regions with...

Induction assisted chemical hardening (curing) or induction hardening is a novel in situ hardening technique for thermoset modified bituminous materials that maintains most of the advantages of natural chemical hardening while eliminating the possible restrictions of longer curing times at lower temperatures. In particular, induction heating can...
